Passover and Easter Feng Shui

Guest Author - Carol M. Olmstead

Why is this Passover going to be different from all other Passovers? Because you can follow a few Feng Shui seating guidelines to help ensure a happy, harmonious family meal. These Feng Shui guidelines also apply to Easter dinner and other holiday events where your family gathers together. Feng Shui is the art and science of placing things in your home to attract wealth, harmony, and love, and you can apply modern Feng Shui principles to locating people around your spring holiday table as well, no matter which holidays you celebrate.

First, be sure to avoid seating a husband directly across from a wife, which is known as confrontational seating. Passover and Easter are holidays that focus on coming together, so itís important to avoid the arguments that sometimes flare up at family gatherings. Also, itís preferable to seat a guest of honor across from one spouse and seat the other spouse in the middle, complementary position. A round table is the best to encourage the easy flow of conversation, but it is usually too small for the extended family and friends joining you at your holiday meal. Instead, use either an oval table or a rectangular table with the edges softened by a white tablecloth.

Next, since both Easter and Passover are spring holidays, itís always a good Feng Shui practice to give the house a thorough cleaning before a holiday meal. This will help remove any negative energy from a long winter, especially if you have been stuck in the house because of illness. Before the traditional Passover Seder, Jews search through the house for crumbs and traces of bread and foods that can't be eaten during the holiday, called "chametz.Ē The Feng Shui parallel is to clean your home before a holiday, searching for dust, removing old dried flowers, replacing air filters, washing windows, and making other seasonal adjustments. Similar to the Feng Shui theme of creating a fresh flow of energy in your home in the spring, Passover and Easter are about new beginnings, and a clean home is the perfect place to start.

In regard to decoration, choose a Feng Shui color scheme for your Passover or Easter table that includes blue for harmony and new beginnings, white for clarity, and gold for power. Arrange fresh flowers in the room to symbolize growth and rebirth, then place them in front of a mirror to symbolically double their positive energy. Just be sure the mirror isnít located across from a window or the positive chi will be directed right out of the room.

Itís an Easter and Passover tradition to wear new clothes, but be sure to avoid wearing red at your Easter or Passover meal. Red is one of the colors of the Feng Shui Fire Element, and adding more heat and fire could lead to family arguments, especially mixed with the heat of all that cooking and the warmer weather.

Feng Shui Tip for Easter
If you and your children color Easter eggs, display the results in the Feng Shui Creativity Area of your home, because this area is activated by round shapes and white colors. Display the palms from Palm Sunday in the Feng Shui Family Area, because it is activated by the Wood Element and the color green.

Feng Shui Tip Specifically for Passover
Place the Seder Plate in the center of the table and arrange the traditional items on the plate according to the Feng Shui bagua - the egg is on the far left of the plate, the shankbone is on the top right, the bitter herbs in the middle, the vegetable in the lower left, and the charoset in the lower right.

Happy spring! This year, assure you have a harmonious gathering by adding a little Passover and Easter Feng Shui to your holiday.
